Issue when reading gdf files {Disarmed}

External Email - Use Caution

Hello everyone!

For the last month I've been toying around with the BCI IV 2a dataset and I
noticed a weird behaviour when I used read_raw_gdf function to import the
data. Particularly, when I tried to plot the gdf data the plot looked
something like this:
*> raw = mne.io.read_raw.gdf(gdf_path)*
*> raw.plot()*
[image: figure1.png]

Today, I noticed that in the raw.info the lowpass and highpass values where
switched
*> raw.info <http://secure-web.cisco.com/1tf0jte3giT4_FYAKjyvbNhol4wm9ZVoZ5Eb-cFanIfJoQCtmSz6mz_3EJ1fGdOgXmvos8bfMyexQxmytKbVHgvTvKhSY3R0dR8vnYVtu7EFCDa5PxbSvepOe-obq-tgYcmfHLoi6pnCKAOzLdtLtKMANmylz8o1nbSTg5iAwb25QtDzRQCCFmUQh0hMHzvWhTNpkVD6F1IweswHL-Rz7cyQ5ZFIAGArw8_3reKmvkpV6Y97VaF7CiBU0LRquSB5C6SFjDcnSjPrbRYCxUGXqig/http%3A%2F%2Fraw.info>*

So, I switched the values of the filters and everything worked fine as
shown below

Am I doing something wrong when reading the gdf files?

Hello!

I just downloaded the data sets from http://secure-web.cisco.com/1DOytGcgnH_P8b5xGsKj4GyC-qJRWmVl5VGHcYaQ6aBgFiDZnDkEhRRGVXi6IXSdMi0Ba3TYpOUGs9F5GYYBUtCxOLIFqnVZjo4cOO7__bLw59Ji2R_-4nqtNrdqVzekjvqYkeUrg2ML1WWm229kRH-bx7kU__Q0m_alyeCY1-UIQZMBCT30xG0GZlwn9rcV3mQ9RdOwaC5rqNSrUKdceMBbFoqW2jaK5qIxbYA3rlsAS8frjht2trTU2SJQoIVXN33-1ImaYQZkR4GZ_PwoHYA/http%3A%2F%2Fbbci.de%2Fcompetition%2Fiv%2Fdownload%2F and opened A01T.gdf and I cannot reproduce the problem; filter settings look OK, e.g. for A01T:

<Info | 7 non-empty values
bads: []
ch_names: EEG-Fz, EEG-0, EEG-1, EEG-2, EEG-3, EEG-4, EEG-5, EEG-C3, EEG-6, ...
chs: 25 EEG
custom_ref_applied: False

lowpass: 100.0 Hz
meas_date: 2005-01-17 12:00:00 UTC
nchan: 25
projs: []
sfreq: 250.0 Hz

Where did you download the data and which data set shows this problem? It looks your file has been processed because it only contains 3 channels (as opposed to 25 in the original file).
